DEBUT ALBUM DUSK to DAWN OUT NOW

“Redefining what Black music can look, feel and sound likeFADER

“Boslen is on a clear cut path for international stardom.” – Lyrical Lemonade

“Boslen has been making a name for himself” – HotNewHipHop

After racking up millions of streams and receiving acclaim from COMPLEX, Lyrical Lemonade, HotNewHipHop, and more, Vancouver-bred genre-defying artist Boslen unveils the music video for “FORSAKEN (feat. Vory)” today. Watch it HERE. It stands out as the latest highlight from his tastemaker-praised debut album, DUSK to DAWN – out now via Chaos Club Digital / Capitol RecordsListen HERE.

“The FORSAKEN” music video is the visual representation of an unfiltered tormenting battle that I and many others face when seeing the end of a relationship before it arrives.” – Boslen

Directed by Cole Muters, produced by Jacob Green, and Creative Directed by Natasha Dion, the visual brings the lyrics and mood to life with intimate closeups of this bold boundary breaker against a lush backdrop.

DUSK to DAWN has already eclipsed over 9.6 million-plus streams and counting in addition to inciting widespread critical applause. Atwood Magazine hailed it as “a raw reckoning manifest in music: The kind of record that needs to be felt in full in order to be understood at its core, and HotNewHipHop praised “his vibe is ambitious, cinematic, and sometimes reminiscent of earlier Travis Scott releases.”  EARMILK christened him “a new voice in hip-hop, taking a refreshingly personal angle on the genre and establishing himself as an exciting, multi-faceted artist to watch,” and FLAUNT put it best, “Boslen is a whole vibe, and we cant get enough.

Featuring guest spots from Tyla YawehVoryDro KenjiRascalz, and CharmaineDUSK to DAWN draws its undeniable power from Boslen’s boundary-pushing vocal experiments, shapeshifting transitions, and heavier production than he’s attempted before. After opening on the soulful minimalism of “DUSK” the album cycles through an entire spectrum of textures and moods, ultimately arriving at the beautifully warped “DAWN.” Naming hyper-creative artists like Kid Cudi among his main inspirations, Boslen notes that DUSK to DAWN emerged from a desire to explore how vulnerability and self-empowerment can co-exist.

Stream “Flawless”—HERE.

On the track, string samples blanket a skittering beat as his melodic flow takes flight. He delivers each line with conviction before locking into a chantable chorus punctuated by airy and effervescent harmonies.

It’s a worthy follow-up to his most recent single “Need Me.” Of the latter, iHipHop raved, “Guwop hits addictive melodies and quick flows, matching the energy of the production,” and Banger of the Day promised “you’ll have to be hitting repeat on this one plenty of times this summer.” Not to mention, it earned plugs from Enigma Online, and more. The song continues a prolific streak highlighted by “Forgot It” and “Super Pain.”

With every move, asserts himself as “Flawless” new talent.

Thus far, Guwop Reign has eclipsed 5 million-plus Soundcloud streams and earned glowing endorsements from tastemakers with Lyrical Lemonade crowning him “one of 2020’s standout stars.” Last year, he rolled through with a string of anthems, including “Demeanor.” Additionally, his fan favorite “Mulan 2” raked in a ton of streams. Lyrical Lemonade proclaimed, “The Atlanta native’s massive range shines and he is able to easily manipulate pitch and cadence to keep his songs continually interesting and simultaneously sonically pleasing.” Meanwhile, The Daily Chiefers commented, “Atlanta’s own Guwop Reign is in the fast lane and firing off nothing but bangers in 2020.”

About Guwop Reign

Music encodes life’s most important lessons. Beneath the beats and between the bars, Guwop Reign confronts the struggles of youth, depression, anxiety, friends-turned-into-foes, and relationships with a level of wisdom and perspective that belies his 16 years. The Boston-born and Atlanta-based rapper flows with the intensity of an open wound as he tightly grips each melody. Streamed nearly four million times on Soundcloud, Reign built an avid fan base with one independent anthem after another including “Money Talk,” “Fly,” and “No Love” plus tastemaker praise from Lyrical Lemonade and Elevator Magazine. Landing a deal with Galactic Records in partnership with Republic Records the young prodigy released his single “Mulan 2” in 2020 and prepares to make his full-length debut for the label. Drawing on diverse influences such as Tupac, Future, Young Thug, and Rihanna, he asserts himself as a melodic hip-hop force ready for the spotlight.

BABYJAKE – THE SUN WAKES UP EARLIER NOW

Singer, songwriter, and producer BabyJake announces his highly anticipated debut album, The Sun Wakes Up Earlier Now, is set for release on September 3rd—pre-order the album now here. To celebrate the announcement, the Gold-Certified artist releases his latest song from the album, “Watching” – listen here.

On The Sun Wakes Up Earlier Now, the Florida-born and Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and producer promises he’s “bringing back rock ‘n’ roll”. However, this isn’t your parents’ rock ‘n’ roll, it’s got all of the style, swagger, and spirit of the seventies, but it’s lit up by a fresh fire. The 11-track genre-blurring album was recorded over the past year and a half in Los Angeles, and BabyJake co-wrote and co-produced the songs with various collaborators, including Bipolar Sunshine, Lizzy McAlpine, and Linda Perry, to name a few.

On the The Sun Wakes Up Earlier Now, BabyJake says, “For me, the album represents crossing into a world of not giving a fuck what anybody thinks and showing I’m a human being. I’m going to dress how I want to dress, act how I want to act, and make what I want to make. If it works, great. Either way, I’m going to keep trucking along.”

To commemorate the release, BabyJake will perform his first-ever headlining shows next month in New York at Baby’s All Right on September 9th and Los Angeles at Moroccan Lounge on September 15th. Not to mention, he will also perform at select festivals this fall, including Napa Valley’s BottleRock on September 3rd and Tampa’s Gasparilla on October 1st. Tickets are on-sale now at It’s Baby Jake.

Earlier this summer, BabyJake released a handful of singles from the album, including “Do I Fit In Your Shoes?”, “Funny Thing About Love” with Bipolar Sunshine, and “Daddy’s Coming Home,” which have been praised by Billboard, V Magazine, TMRW Magazine, American Songwriter, and many more.

The Sun Wakes Up Earlier Now follows BabyJake’s 2020 debut EP Don’t give me problems, give me wine, hailed by critics and fans alike. The seven-song genre-bending EP features his breakout single “Head In The Clouds” and was acclaimed by Notion, The Line Of Best Fit, Ones To Watch, This Song Is Sick, Lyrical Lemonade, and more. Wonderland stated, “Few artists are able to bounce so seamlessly from genre to genre than BabyJake,” while Flaunt proclaimed, “BabyJake is on his way to superstardom.” Earlier this year, BabyJake teamed up with Louis The Child on “Somewhere Else.”

About Babyjake
BabyJake promises he’s “bringing back rock ‘n’ roll”. However, this isn’t your parents’ rock ‘n’ roll. It’s got all of the style, swagger, and spirit of the seventies, but it’s lit up by a fresh fire. The Florida-born and Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and producer exudes enough star power to pull off a cowboy hat and flare jeans (like some kind of lovable Quentin Tarantino outlaw), but he’s also definitely a byproduct of the times with a natural predilection for viral impact. In 2019, he introduced himself with the gold-selling “Cigarettes on Patios,” crashing viral charts and piling up 100 million-plus streams. During 2020, he remained prolific with his debut EP, Don’t give me problems, give me wine. In its wake, Flaunt predicted, “BabyJake is on his way to superstardom,” while he earned acclaim from Billboard, Wonderland, V Magazine, Notion, TMRW Magazine, American Songwriter, The Line Of Best Fit, Ones To Watch, This Song Is Sick, and Lyrical Lemonade, to name a few. Along the way, he collaborated with everyone from 24kgoldn to Dillon Francis and Louis The Child. Now, he fulfills his mission on his 2021 full-length debut album, The Sun Wakes Up Earlier Now [SB Projects/Republic Records], out September 3rd.

RENCE — “AWOOO!”

“Rence is in his own lane, defying the stigma that an artist has to be bound by any one genre.” – FLAUNT

“In a way that few artists can, Rence has redefined his sound with every new release.” – ONES TO WATCH

“Rence is one of the most promising vocalists in the music industry right now.” – LYRICAL LEMONADE

Critically acclaimed, buzzing singer, songwriter and produce Rence is back today with the heartfelt new single “AWOOO!” Get it HERE via Epic Records.

Hopeful and romantic on the surface, the breakout star’s latest release is actually a breakup song, even if not immediately apparent in the lyrics. “I love when you howl at the moon, I wanna lay here watching you,” the 23-year-old coos over dreamy guitars. “Til I’m howling too, like AWOOO!”

“I actually wrote it as a bookend to a relationship,” Rence says. “But it turned into a love song even as a goodbye.” Somber but full of life and color, “AWOOO!” became about the realization that even true love can fade. It covers the kind of complex emotional territory that Rence has tread since bursting onto the pop music scene while still studying at NYU.

“AWOOO!” follows the exuberant anthem “Endless,” which was released at the top of 2021 and showcases his trademark vulnerability and emotional nuance. With more new music on the horizon, he continues to create a kaleidoscopic pop sound, while experimenting with everything from electro to hip hop.

Over the last few years, Rence has established himself as one of pop’s most unguarded young stars. When he isn’t crafting transparently emotional singles like “Strawberry Blonde” and “Type 2,” he’s lifting the veil on his artistic process in a series of TikTok videos. At the same time, the artist/producer has also stayed busy with collaborations, recording music with Sarah Barrios, Alex Port, Chloe Lilac and Johan Lenox. Since debuting, Rence has amassed more than 50 million cumulative streams and continues to expand his fan base with each release. “AWOOO!” further builds out the emotional complexity and intricate instrumentals at the core of his songs, reminding listeners that there are poignant messages behind every infectious melody.

ABOUT RENCE:

Sharing real life snapshots in song, Rence magnifies his personal perspective through a genre-less palette, bordering pop, alternative, electro, indie and hip-hop all at once, yet never dipping into one for too long. He first introduced himself on the breakthrough independent project, Pink, featuring standout single “Baby Blue.” In 2019, after signing to Epic Records, he followed with the release of “Expensive” [feat. Noah Cyrus] and his major label debut EP, FALL 2019. Over the last year, his consistent output continued with the bold and buzz-y “hate u, btw,” “Type 2,” “Tears in December,” “Sometimes Things Just Fall Apart,” “Strawberry Blonde” and “Endless.” With over 50 million streams and counting, Rence has received acclaim from the likes of Pigeons and Planes (who named him “Best New Artist” Dec 2019), The FADER, Lyrical Lemonade, Nylon, Billboard, V Magazine, Paper, i-D, Wonderland, Flaunt and Zane Lowe.

Willow Kayne from Derek Sherron, Epic Records for use by 360 Magazine

Willow Kayne shares high-energy single – I Don’t Wanna Know

Please meet UK pop provocateur Willow Kayne, who has shared her new single “I Don’t Wanna Know” today. Listen here at all DSPs.

After releasing a slew of independent singles, Willow signed with Sony this year and released her major label debut single “2 Seater” just a few months back to buzz and acclaim, even receiving early love from BBC Radio 1. Now, the 19 year old is throwing her hat in the ring as one of the most vivid, genre-blurring pop provocateurs in music today. A keen visual artist with influences as far-reaching as fashion design giant Nigo and production mastermind Pharrell, she pools together the most lucid touchpoints of all her inspirations to build a sound as diverse as her creative palette. Willow can trace this eclecticism directly back to her childhood, being raised by a hip-hop and house-obsessed father and a mother who produced videos for the likes of Erasure and the Prodigy. James Brown, Nas, and MF DOOM were all significant early influences, and soon she was making her own musical discoveries, falling hard for artists as diverse as Tyler The Creator, the Sex Pistols, Gorillaz, and Portishead.

Teaming up with UK hitmaker Oscar Scheller, “I Don’t Wanna Know” takes all of the attitude Willow has started to become synonymous with and ramps it up to 11 – taking cues from the old school rave culture that she is obsessed with by sticking a middle finger up to trolls over a drum & bass indebted production. It’s a high energy example of just how unpredictable a talent Willow is, and how easy she makes it look; the track is packed with hilarious one-liners that cut those who have bullied her online to size. An empowering anthem that deals with real life issues with a sense of confidence that feels refreshing in the landscape of pop today. The official video, along with a debut project and a HUGE announcement are all coming soon…

Watch previous music video “2 Seater” here.

“…a future star…” – i-D Magazine

“…playful lyricism, smooth refrains, and ‘90s-indebted grooves.” – NME

“…the artists that stick out from the pack are always those who are willing to switch things up, and quite clearly, Kayne isn’t afraid to do so…” – Lyrical Lemonade

“The Gen Z talent links together huge opposing forces, creating her own potent brand of rebel-pop.” – Clash Magazine

“A sizzling rallying-call from the Bristol-based artist all about living your own life and doing your own thing, ‘Two Seater’ blends rap verses with 90s-tinged pop influences, resulting in an instantly catchy debut.” – DIY Magazine

YSB Tril HOTSHOT Mixtape Cover from Randy Henderson for use by 360 Magazine

YSB Tril Shines As Ultimate ‘HOTSHOT’ With New Video

Following the release of his debut mixtape last week, rising rookie YSB Tril (LISTEN TO THE KIDS/Interscope Records) dashes back with his latest visual, “HOTSHOT.” Directed by Nicholas Jandora, Tril’s humor is on full display. Under Jandora’s direction, Tril not only takes a drive with an elderly lady, but he also squeezes time to dunk on a kid and sits in on a therapy session. His penchant for thrill and theatrics continues when he gives his therapist some plastic surgery.

Watch here.

“HOTSHOT” is one of the many swaggering records whipped up by Tril on his 13-track project. Tril has previously garnered success with his previously released singles “AIN’T THE SAME” and “TOUCHDOWN,” featuring Bankrol Hayden as each record amassed over six million streams globally. The former became a popular song in the sports world after the NBA and Toronto Raptors used it before tip-off during the regular season. As part of his mixtape release, Tril performed “ALL DA ACTION” and “HOTSHOT” last week for the Toronto Ultra halftime show. To date, Tril’s HOTSHOT project is over 17 million streams.

So far in his career, the rising rookie showcased his versatility and rock-solid work ethic, amassing his streaming totals to a whopping five million independently. Last year, Tril earned him a performance slot for NBA #2KFest celebration. Tri’s rapid ascension equally enthuses publications. GrungeCake lauded the young hyphenate for his “undeniably catchy, singsongy hook and fast-paced verses” on “Do It Most.” Flaunt Magazine highlighted Tril’s action-packed video “ALL DA ACTION” and dubbed him “a force to be reckoned with.” Lyrical Lemonade applauded Tril for having a “natural and effortless flow you cannot teach.”

Tril also thrives on self-reliance, as he is proven to record his music, film his videos, and even developed a strong connection with his fans on social media. With Roddy Ricch and Juice WRLD serving as influences, YSB’s road to greatness will come sooner than later.

12AM x Jutes — Ski Mask from Jenny Hossain for use by 360 Magazine

12AM × JUTES — “SKI MASK”

Prolific alternative Pop, Hip Hop and R&B artist 12AM taps Jutes for his latest single “Ski Mask” out now via Sony Music Canada. The new heat arrives with a Spring Breakers-inspired video co-directed by 12AM himself and Chris Villa (Post Malone, Tyla Yaweh). You can listen to “Ski Mask” HERE. You can watch the new video HERE.

The hard-hitting track encompasses infectiously melodic vocals escorted by 12AM’s ability to captivate audiences with his storytelling prowess. With lyrics outlining love and what can be put on the line to keep it, “Ski Mask” is one of many chapters to come.

“Me and Jutes have been wanting to put out a song for so long together but we had to have the right one… we made a couple records here and there but once I free-styled the hook for “Ski Mask” we both knew this was the one. He laid his verse down and bodied it and it made me step my game up on my verse,” explains 12AM.

“12 played me just the hook and said, yep this the one. I went in, recorded my verse in 15 mins, it just came out mad easy, showed him and he went crazy for it. Definitely feels good to finally have a track together. We’ve lived together and been grinding this music shit together for so long and never released a song together but it was worth the wait,” Jutes adds.

On the making of the video, 12AM also notes, “I’ve always been super hands on with everything I do. I was directing my own music videos in high school and just always had a vision for it. Chris and I work easy together and I’ve learned a lot from him from doing multiple videos and he let me do my thing for this one. He had ideas, I had ideas, and we met in the middle but when I wasn’t in the shots I loved being behind the camera and having my vision come to life.”

“Ski Mask” arrives as a follow up to “come over” and “Voices” whose success resulted in early rotation on Apple Radio 1, premieres with Travis Mills and media coverage from cultural tastemaker Lyrical Lemonade, among others. Adding to mainstream radio and media coverage, praise for upcoming releases can be seen on social media from artists such as Travis Barker, Tyla Yaweh and Elijah Woods.

Los Angeles-based, Ottawa native Matthew Dubois better known as 12AM is an emerging alternative R&B singer stemming from the ever-expanding Canadian music scene.

Earning love from streaming platforms and radio alike, 12AM’s releases have landed consistent debuts on new music playlists in the US and Canada, garnering early support in rotation on Apple Music 1 Radio which led to premieres with Travis Mills for “love dies” and “come over.” Notably 12AM boasts over 15 million streams with 6 million of those branching from viral tracks “Voices” and “come over.”

No stranger to media coverage and acclaim from tastemakers, praise can be seen coming from industry key players such as Lyrical Lemonade who said “12AM has been having a massive year without being able to tour, the Canadian [and LA-based] artist has an innate ability to craft big choruses which is why more and more artists are tapping in to use his melodic talents.”

A prolific storyteller, 12AM consistently writes for other artists as well as himself. 12AM can be seen frequently working with Elijah Woods and Omer Fedi (Kid Laroi “Without You”), (24kGoldn & Iann Dior “Mood”) and (Lil Nas X “Montero”) also regularly working with producers Midi Jones, Bizness Boi and NGHT NGHT. Apart from writing and making music, 12AM has an extensive touring background, in his most recent run touring North America with Souly Had, 12AM completed over 30 show dates on a single tour amassing sold out venues in Salt Lake City and Toronto. Touring accolades include dates with Internet Money, Iann Dior, Jez Dior, 24kGoldn, Jutes and Trevor Daniel. A one-of-a-kind artist, 12AM’s passion and pain shine through his music-making and unique narrative ability.

With highly anticipated upcoming releases with Travis Barker, Jutes, and Pyrex, paired with the heavy hitting management team of Tes Siyoum (Tyla Yaweh) and Alec Strasmore (ex-Post Malone), 12AM is creating the pathway for a summer 2021 takeover. 12AM’s repertoire is only at its inception, the future looks incredibly bright for the multifaceted and highly talented singer.
